Does a tattoo artist need to be able to do piercings too?

I want to be a tattoo artist, and get an apprenticeship. I have noticed though, that a lot of tattoo shops also do piercings. If I am a tattoo artist do i need to be able to do piercings aswell?

Which tattoo should I get?

I am about to get my first tattoo. I have an idea of two:

The first one is the eye of ra.

I’m thinking of getting it on my neck.

The second one is the infinity to beyond equation on my wrist.

How much does a tattoo stretch after pregnancy?

I’m turning 18 in a few months, and my birthday present will be a tattoo!! I’d like to get a rose vine that starts around my arms, stretches down to my back, twists on my side, and rests on my pelvic bone. Here’s the thing: I would like to have at least one kid down the road. How badly will this stretch the tattoo? Will it be ruined?

PS I’m a size 5 if that has to do with anything. Pretty average.

How to go about getting a tattoo apprenticeship?

I live in Pottstown, PA. there are a fair amount of tattoo shops around here and the surrounding area. Only problem is half of them are Wizards Tattoos which is a chain of about 4 or 5 shops so i dont think i could get one form them. another thing is I am only 18 and still in school.
